Bulgaria: Bulgarians have Proved to be the most Active in the EU in Reporting Crimes

About 25 percent of Bulgarians, or almost every fourth of our compatriots, were willing to report a crime or vandalism to the relevant authorities, according to data from a large-scale Eurostat analysis of the subject of "crime" in 2016.

The average indicator for Europeans who have indicated their willingness to report to the competent authorities about a crime, criminal incident or vandalism in their region is about 15 per cent, according to European statistics.

Being prepared to report a crime, criminal act or vandalism - Bulgaria is an indisputable leader in the EU with 25 per cent willingness of the population to report to the competent authorities about such an act.

About 20 percent of Italians are willing to report a crime, as well as about 18 percent of Dutch and English. At the opposite pole, only 3 per cent of the Croats were willing to cooperate with the competent authorities, as well as 5 per cent of the Lithuanians and Poles.

Eurostat estimates of the percentage of people who are willing to report a crime has shown that in EU cities almost every fifth inhabitant, or about 20 percent, is ready to help counter crime.

In rural areas, this percentage is nearly three times lower - only about 7 per cent of those living in such settings have been prepared to report a crime.

The highest share of counter-crime money is spent in Switzerland - 450 euros per capita, Eurostat reports. The second state, where the most money is allocated to the judiciary, is Luxembourg - EUR 200 per capita. Following are: Britain and Germany - 180 euro, Sweden, Ireland and Austria - about 150 euro per capita, and others.

The lowest per capita total for the judiciary is set aside in Cyprus and Romania - around 25 euros, Estonia and Lithuania - about 40 euros, Bulgaria and Hungary - about 50 euros.
